Public holiday pay for part-time employees

QUESTION

Dear HR Community

I am trying to understand public holiday (PH) pay for part-time employees who are paid monthly and seek your advice.

1. If the PH falls on his non-working day, do you pay him as per the formula in the Employment (Part-time Employees) regulations?

2. If PH falls on his working day, do you deduct the difference of his PH pay and daily pay from his pay because the PH pay calculated may be less than his daily pay?

We are a non-profit organisation.

Thank you for your advice.

Doreen

Review the EA again and check this against your contracts. Revise your contracts to ensure they are up to code and review your part-time compensation structure - EH

The pay is monthly so the pay is inclusive for PH although is a part-time employee. Other than, the payment is by daily. Then just pay for the day he works. - KPY
